July 6th!! Mark your calendars!  The LARGE platform on this die cut/embossing machine is the bomb.  Do I large cut or several small cuts.  You can get more done and done easier with the electric feed. For my last project with the Crafter Companion team, I created this little book.  It can be anything you […]

The first time I laid eyes on this image (before the stamp arrived), I was head over heals in love.  I adore all things Steampunk and this stamp fits so nicely! I was going to post it yesterday, but it’s the Father’s Day card the boys gave their dad and I didn’t want him to […]

Did some more playing with the Gemini (Coming soon!).  Let’s talk about what it looks like.  It’s beefy!  It has a sleek profile and is rather smallish (compared to other electronic die machines).  Don’t be fooled, though.  It’s heavy! The Gemini Evie die is for lacing.  It is so pretty and easy to work with. […]

Let’s talk about the new bad boy coming to town!  The Gemini.  It’s an electric die cut/embossing machine that is already a favorite in my studio. A couple of things I’ve done with it so far… Die cutting numerous items on the amazingly large plates… Cut felt!  Alot of people say they’ve cut felt in […]

I used to get funny looks from people who asked if I watched Downton Abbey and I’d say no.  I’d see snippets in media about it, but it just didn’t grab my attention.  Well, I did eventually cave and watched the first 3 seasons on Amazon.  When they wanted me to then PAY for the […]

Coming soon, there’s going to be a new boss on the playground.  The Gemini!  The Gemini is an electric Die-cutting and Embossing machine.  It’s got serious muscle! I’ll be telling you more about it over the next few days and also showing what it can do! ~*~*~*~*~ Because this baby cuts and embosses licketysplit, you […]

I’m pretty sure I have EVERYTHING possible to create whatever I wish.  I have cabinets and closets and baskets and drawers that are literally stuffed full of embellishments, papers, stamps, inks, etc.  Most of it is from years of working on design teams.  Then I get this picture in my mind of what I want […]

Well here we are.  Thirty four years from the day I married my best friend.  It really baffles me that it doesn’t feel so long even though we raised four fine sons, moved a dozen times and have fought many demons.  We’re still here.  I guess like a lot of people, I imagined us sitting […]

In case you haven’t notice, Crafters Companion is coming out with new lines fast and furious.  I’m a little behind in getting samples made, so expect to see more over the next few weeks. The Love & Romance line makes you think of Valentine’s Day first, but Love should be celebrated 365 days a year […]

Today I made the LARGEST card I’ve ever made.  It’s a full 8 1/2 x 11″ piece of cardstock scored in half.  At first I thought it was just too big and I’d never be able to adequately decorate it, but I managed!  It was also a plus to be able to use some of […]
